Continuing the trend of supporting fellow authors, I present a book of poetry, “Love: Lost and Found” by Pamela Beckford. The poetess describes her tome as being filled with poems reflecting the phases of love.
There are poems of longing and pain and poems of exhilaration and joy in a collection of over 90 poems, representing over 10 different forms of poetry. Here is just one sample:
Alone (double cinquain)
Gazing at the moonlight
Wondering just when you’ll be here
To start our lives
Never to leave again
Becoming whole and not just half
Pamela has written a second collection of love poems. As she describes, her poetry is an expression from deep within the soul. It can be therapeutic and healing. It can bring out all the best or the worst in life. She explains that her poetry comes from the heart, not the head. It is an outpouring of emotion, and she exposes it to the reader in the pages. The poems span the angst and despair of love lost to the exhilaration and ecstasy of a deep abiding love.
Love: Lost and Found has already received a five star review that reads:
“Pamela Beckford writes with her heart as much as her mind. She makes me feel things when I read her work that usually stay buried beneath the surface. Her way of expressing emotions that usually aren’t captured for later evaluation is amazing.
I also enjoy that she uses a lot of different styles and forms of poetry in her collections, making the book varied and interesting. Some are shorter and some longer, but all of them carefully constructed. Her ability to say so much in so few words is a indication of her talent as a writer.
If you are looking for an excellent poetry book, look no further.”
Pamela’s other books have also garnered some great reviews, and both are available on Kindle or paperback as well. Be sure to check out her Dreams of Love Collection. In collaboration with Kirsten A, “Voices of Nature” is a collection of poems that reflect the inherent splendor of nature all around us. This book utilizes a variety of poetry forms to paint word pictures.
Season of Love (tanka)
First there is summer,
Followed by fall, winter, spring
But lest we forget
The season of love appears
Bringing hope for all lost souls
